Scientific Apps (Android) Literature Apps (Android)
Chemistry Helper A simple app designed as a quick reference for chemistry students. Includes a periodic table with links to wikipedia, a tool to calculate molecular masses of compounds (with a button at the top to perform simple grams/moles calculations, calculate mass percents and do stoichiometry with that compound), a table of polyatomic ions, constants, solubility rules, tools for calculating molarity and volume of solutions, tools for converting between units commonly used in chemistry.
Note: ad supported
Chemicalize This app simplifies accessing chemicalize.org, a public web resource developed by ChemAxon which uses ChemAxon's Name to Structure parsing to identify chemical structures on webpages and other text. Related to each structure, structure based predictions are available, as well a search interface is provided to discover substructures or similar structures.
Atomdroid A computational chemistry tool for the Android platform. It can be used as a molecular viewer/builder and contains local optimization and Monte Carlo simulation features. Install now and experience mobile computational chemistry! Monte Carlo simulation and analysis, Global optimization using a Monte Carlo with minimizations approach, Universal Force Field (UFF) implementation (currently without electrostatics).
The application is currently in beta state.
MolPrime is a chemical structure drawing tool based on the unique sketcher from the Mobile Molecular DataSheet (MMDS). Publication-quality molecular diagrams can be drawn quickly on touchscreen devices of all sizes, using the interface that has been designed from the ground up to make optimal use of gestures and template-guided placement.
ChemSpider Mobile allows you to search the ChemSpider chemical database, provided by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Compounds can be searched by structure or by name, and browsed within the app. Results can be examined by jumping to the web page.
ChemInform Acronyms contains more than 900 acronyms of chemical substances or fragments which have been collected from about 100 chemical journals. In view of the thousands of acronyms devised by authors in the chemical literature, this list is certainly not comprehensive, but it is useful for the identification of the more common abbreviations.
Academic is a tool for students and researches, it has a collection of dedicated search engines from where to choose. Find articles and papers from different sources in one go and save your findings. This is a FREE application, with NO ASSOCIATION at all with any of these services and companies and no financial gain or support of any kind. All results will link directly to each Search Engine Website
PubMed – Unbound MEDLINE connects you to over 20 million journal citations and abstracts from PubMed via your smartphone or tablet. Perform powerful searches, share citations with colleagues, and link directly to the publisher’s full text. Visually explore the literature using Grapherence™, a unique way to find related and relevant articles.
Scholar Droid is a free application that lets you conveniently browse through search results returned by Google Scholar, look up book results on Amazon, add/export/import bookmarks, view/save free PDF articles to SD card and send search result links as email. Lets you quickly view PDF links returned by Google Scholar using Google Docs Viewer without having to download them.
Scholarley is an unofficial Android client for Mendeley; which is a free and convenient application for managing your library of academic papers (see: http://www.mendeley.com/). Scholarley has been designed for both Android phones and tablets.Note: Scholarley cannot synchronise your annotations with Mendeley. This is due to limitations in the Mendeley Open API.
Article Search Qross, you can search and find research papers on your Android, wherever you are. You may send results via email, save them into Mendeley, store them in Evernote, share them with friends via Facebook or Twitter.
